It’s comforting to know no matter what act of god, unforeseen catastrophe, or fatal mishap that may occur on our wedding day, dessert is covered.  Between the caterer’s options, our favorite banana bread cupcakes from Billy’s, and s’mores at the bonfire we are en route to an epic spread.

On top of it all, we just went to Baked in Red Hook for a cake tasting.  They gave us 9 cupcakes corresponding to the various cakes in their repertoire:  Green Tea Almond, Red Velvet, Malted Milk Ball, Peanut Butter Chocolate, and so forth.  However, the clear winner was the Sweet & Salty cake. Behold:

The designer and consultant we worked with were great.  I would totally recommend the $25 tasting to another couple, or anyone who wanted to get their diabetes on.   I only hope we’ll have an excuse to head all the way back out to Red Hook again before the wedding.  Does anyone need to hit up IKEA?
